TWU sees record spring enrollment

DENTON — A record-setting 14,221 students are attending Texas Woman’s University this semester, marking the university’s largest ever spring semester enrollment. TWU also is breaking records for enrolling new Hispanic students and in the retention of students.

Hispanic enrollment is up 7.9 percent to 2,420 students. In addition, TWU retained more continuing students than ever in the spring, with 12,753 students returning to the university.

“We know that retention is key to our continued enrollment success and are pleased that our retention efforts are resulting in more students continuing at TWU,” said Dr. Richard Nicholas, TWU vice president for student life.

TWU students are enrolled for 140,432 semester credit hours, up 2.6 percent from last spring. Student credit hours, not headcount, determine a university’s state funding.

TWU’s spring 2012 enrollment was 14,028 students.

All numbers are based on preliminary 12th class day data.
